Acland was elected to Parliament in 1885 and his translation to politics provided the opportunity to refound university extension in Oxford. Michael Sadler was appointed secretary at the end of April 1885, and new regulations for extension lectures were drafted and approved. Under Sadler a more formal administration of the programme developed, and Oxford came to follow the pattern laid down by Cambridge. Oxford extension was similarly dependent on the voluntary efforts of local enthusiasts who organized, planned, and publicized courses. By the 1890s the elements of an extension education had been established. Oxford extension offered Sadler, like Acland before him, the opportunity of building a career in public service and using experience and knowledge gained through lecturing in the wider cause of social reform.
